Default There Is No Sense in High-Speed Dual-Channel Memory Kits – OCZ

There is an ongoing fight between a number of premium memory modules in terms of clock-speeds. But does anybody need them? OCZ Techology Group, a leading supplier of memory modules does not think exactly so.

Intel Corp., the world’s largest maker of microprocessors, currently has two platforms: the LGA1366 for high-end systems and the LGA1156 for mainstream computers. The triple-channel LGA1366 platform by definition has higher bandwidth than the LGA1156 one with dual-channel memory controller at almost any reasonable clock-speed. But maybe the rise of clock-speeds will not work? It will, but only in the certain cases, according to OCZ.

it's a neverending story, there's high speed and high speed with tight timings; there's the 2 vs 4 vs 8 vs xxGb discussion...

Will you see a benefit in daily apps. For sure you can see a few % gain, but it's not worth the premium price...

For benchers; sorry OCZ you run the fastest thing you can get... high density, I'm thinking 4gb is more than enough, unless you want to open a zillion of windows and apps...

As with everything, answer is "it depends" on what you use it for. For HPC purposes users can still get a tangible performance gain.

With Folding@home the difference between 1333MHz and 1600MHz CAS 7 memory is the equivalent of an extra ~400-600Mhz overclock on a Core i7 CPU. Well worth the ~$20 extra cost for a 1600MHz kit for me. I've never found a Core i7 that could run a 4GHz uncore, otherwise I'd test 2,000MHz.
